Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. She tries to put herself back together by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend. When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano-the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, and Andrea's former lover-die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate. Now she must work with Raphael as her search for the killer leads into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta. And dealing with her feelings for him might have to take a back seat to saving the world.

    Story
    "A Great Supporting Character Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gunmetal Magic to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I think this is better than the print version because the narrator brings, life to the characters through her voice


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of the story is the fact that it isn't Kate and it is still a great story. I love the character Kate Daniels because she is kick butt, and this showcases the fact that Andrea is kick butt also. I have never read a series where the co stars could be a star on their own like this series. Gunmetal Magic proves that a secondary character can be a primary character and the primary can move to a secondary role.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator helped me imagine exactly what was going on in the whole entire book. She made it easy to imagine that you are right there experiencing the drama.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lots of movement and action


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of Kate Daniels and are upset she isn't the lead in this book don't be upset because this book is just as good as a Kate book.

    Story
    "Enjoyed Andrews Again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoyed the read and recommend it to anyone who enjoys alternate reality/urban fantasy. Using a different viewpoint character than stories to date was refreshing.


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    The current style is strong female lead characters and Gunmetal Magic fits this mold.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms Raudman has good voice distinction between the characters in the book. If you listen to other titles in the series her male characters are similar sounding. The book was well read.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire series makes great light reading and is a good traveling companion.

    Story
    "Andrea Nash answers the door and takes charge!"
    What made the experience of listening to Gunmetal Magic the most enjoyable?

    It was Andrea's time to be in the spotlight and this book has her front and center. You get to understand her choices and the reasons why they were made and I cheered her on.


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    Kate Daniels "Magic" series of which this is a spin off book.


    Have you listened to any of Renée Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms, Raudman read the Magic Series and I am so very glad she was selected for this book too. I think she is exceptional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when she was able to listen to a recorded message that was made secretly in a meeting with Aunt Bea.


    Any additional comments?

    I sure hope more books follow in this series.

    "Another great Ilona Andrews book"

    This writing duo is always great and this book stays consistent with their style. Rich in mythology, but not just the basic Greek, Roman or Norse - lots of older myths that you may or may not really know much about, so it's much more interesting. I enjoyed the book a lot and thought the narrator was good. I thought I wasn't going to like her at first, but I forgot about it and just enjoyed... Whatever I thought was annoying, obviously wasn't that bad, because I can't remember what it was, haha.

    "Good but Incomplete"

    Very good loved it. Only downside is that it is incomplete they leave off the last third of the book which is a short story about what Kate is doing at the same time.

    Story
    "Very Little Kate, Still Fun"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoy this series. The world and characters are fun, full of action and it makes for entertaining, light listening.


    What other book might you compare Gunmetal Magic to and why?

    In comparison to the other books in the series this was the first one to not feature Kate Daniels as the main character. I guess because it is listed under the "Kate Daniels" series I was expecting something different. It threw me off in the beginning, but I quickly figured it out and got over my initial disappointment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't think this is an extreme reaction kind of book. It's fun, full of action and romance, but not overly emotional. This isn't The Notebook. It's more like the Terminator.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to just about anyone. If it were a series of movies it would be perfect to watch with your girlfriend. Enough of a chick flick to keep her happy, and enough action and killing for any guy to be able to admit he liked it.

    Story
    "Ilona Andrews = Pure Magic!!"

    My favourite husband & wife writing team has done it again. Solid writing with plenty of humor and enough action & romance that I think even those readers new to the world of Kate Daniels ( The original "Magic" series of which this book is a spinoff of sorts) will enjoy.

    Having said that --- I would still greatly encourage people to read the entire Kate/Curran series as they are FABULOUS. As stated the writing is solid/stellar and no previous knowledge of other books is needed but for those who have read the other series, you will appreciate some of the humor more as you are more well-aquainted with the characters.

    Also, as a reader of both series... it's great to get some answers to things that motivated some of Andrea's actions ---- now I can say IN YOUR FACE to all the naysayers who were blasting Andrea.

    I enjoyed learning more about Andrea's beastkin background; I always enjoy Raphael (smile) ---- Basically, I enjoyed seeing characters I already know and love.... as well as some new (well, almost new) characters as well.

    "Russian Sugar Bear" was it???



    A note on Rene Raudman ---- She may not be on my top 5 list of favorite narrators, but she is also NOWHERE near my list of "can't stand to listen to" narrators either. Another reviewer mentioned her earlier works --- I'm only familar with her in conjunction with Ilona Andrews books and she continues her reading style ---voices, inflections, etc --- so I guess listen to the sample first. Personally, I have enjoyed her readings of both the Kate Daniels/Magic series and the Edge series --- which I also love and adore.

    "Andrea's story continues"

    The beginning of this series, Kate was our main character and her friend Andrea was always there to back her up. Now Andrea, born beastkin, and tortured by the her mother's pack is our main character. At first I was dissappointed but after a few minutes of listening I was hooked. Kate and her mate, your fuzziness, are there to support Andrea as she comes to terms with the fact that the pack in Atlanta will always be at her back, and she can make a big contribution to them. Favorite characters from earlier books are back, as well as a new evil "God" to overcome. Worth the listen as all of the books in this series are.
